Back from N'awlins y'all. We had a great time diggin' the music scene down there. This podcast reflects the music we heard, and the musicians that were performing throughout the city and particularly in the clubs on Frenchman Street near the French Quarter. We start with the man that started it all, Louis Armstrong, and move into the big brass sound of The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. We caught trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis leading his own 15 piece band, so he is represented here though in a quintet setting. I picked up Pat Casey's and the New Sound's CD at his performance at the Spotted Cat Music Club. These young cats represent some of the fine musicians playing all kinds of jazz throughout the city, and keeping the jazz scene fresh in New Orleans.
Here is a video I took of a fine street band on Jackson Square.
